MiniDuke, a cleverly coded Adobe PDF exploit, made news back in February — it was used to target several European governments.
Now, more than ever, exploit prevention is a critical layer of defense. And that's why F-Secure Labs analysts such as Timo Hirvonen have become such experts on exploits — so our technology can be made better (with developers such as Jose Perez).
Here's a screenshot of our current DeepGuard behavioral engine tech vs. MiniDuke:
Blocked — proactively, without signature-based scanning or back end heuristics.
Exploit interception is one of our primary goals — because exploits are the front end of an attack platform.
More about our technology, and a case study of the ZeroAccess bot, is available from our whitepaper…
